A summer treat from RPS and Hermina Athens to you, with love

· RockPaperScissors, RPS Team, Wedding Inspiration · , , , , ,

It’s in the most challenging of times that one should stop, take a deep breath and remember the things they’re most grateful for having in their lives, now more than ever. That’s what we did the other day, we sat down and made a list of them. Other than the obvious -family, friends, good health- we highlighted two of the things we’re most lucky to enjoy right now:

For years, we’ve been having the joy and privilege to work with Greek lifestyle brands that stand out by creating products that are more than objects, they are experiences. So, we thought that it is high time we introduce them to you. This way we’ll get you acquainted with the unique aesthetic of modern Greek designers and provide you with a small but precious piece of Greece to have with you at any given time, even when far away from here.

Without further ado, let us introduce you to the amazing jewellery brand of an equally amazing Greek designer, very dear to our hearts: Hermina Athens.

With their own words:

Hermina is a selection of timeless pieces influenced by a rich heritage rooted in Greek mythology and art. The elements of asymmetry, roughness and appreciation of tradition give birth to unique jewellery leading the mind to a journey adorned with the sights and sounds of Greek summer life. With a deep love and respect for the beauty of the imperfect, to which we all owe our uniqueness, we create small treasures to be passed on from mothers to daughters, from elders to youngers.

Rock Paper Scissors has secured for you a 15% off for every purchase you make from Hermina Athens, just by using the discount code RPS15.

Now you can kick off the summer with a little treat from us. Enjoy!

Keep Working For Love

Wedding planning in the COVID-19 era

Dear friends, couples and colleagues,

As COVID-19 has clearly invaded our lives changing our life style and behaviour – hopefully for only the next few months – we wish to share with you a few thoughts.

In these challenging times, we, at Rock Paper Scissors Events, are leaning on our core values, Commitment, Professionalism, Teamwork and Respect, which have been our beacon since our inception almost ten years ago and have been the key ingredients in helping you building lifetime memories.

Undoubtedly, everyone’s utmost concern must be the personal health and safety of our families, employees, friends and ourselves. However, we are committed to continue guiding you to one of the best days of your life along with our esteemed partners and associates.

There is no single formula for doing this; however, we have already aligned our methodology to the new conditions.

Two things we know about crisis from our experience, they are all different, and they all end.

 We are firm believers that love prevails and we will do everything in our power to keep working for love. #keepworkingforlove #keepworkingforlife

And remember: We are all in this together.

Love and virtual hugs,
Helena, Paraskevi and the Rock Paper Scissors Team

Kids Events

Happy kids have happy memories! Give your children the joy of having unforgettable celebrations during all childhood important days. Although no child can actually remember the day of his/her baptism, still it comes a point where they open their photo album and treasure the moments. They ask questions and want to hear the story of their christening, again and again.

Give your children the best possible memories of their childhood. Throw the best parties for their birthdays and all the significant days that gradually will become loving & bonding family events. Nothing can compare with funny stories in family gatherings, where all your loved ones can shed light from their side of the stories.

Despite the fact, we are into Luxury Destination Weddings & Corporate Events Planning for more than 8 years, we have a soft spot for kids events. Our collaboration with We Can Do It For Kids Only, has given us the chance to party like kids! We are thrilled for this blessing!

A Greek baptism is a very important event for families. Apart from religious reasons, it’s also the first official presentation of the baby in front of the extended family circle and friends. The parents will have to choose the child’s name, decide on Godparents, do all the planning, send the invitations, prepare the favors and all the details of the christening celebrations, ahead of the big day.

Summer is only days away and the kid’s party season is ready to rock your evenings! These unforgettable events will give you a clue of what to expect from the upcoming events.

Dare to Add Vivid Colors in Christenings

Rock your child’s christening by forgetting all rules. Add vivid colors and go to the extreme for decorations. Children love strong combinations and are attracted by unique toys.

This colorful christening in Lamia stole all the impressions and kids didn’t stop to play for hours. The original idea was based in Frida Karlo but in a more kid’s friendly version. Parents cared for everything with so much care! Especially the mother of our little Malena was full of amazing ideas. She had a clear vision of her little one’s day and guided us with all her inspiration. The venue was the best background for this contemporary themed christening.

Pompons, colorful ribbons, and linens played a truly important role in the decoration enabling us for this fiesta. Huge thanks to all vendors involved:

Colorful Christenings in Greece

Handmade painted details are adding a stylish tone to a baptism. For people that have an eye for details, art & eco-friendly decorations leave the best impressions. Also, kids feel more comfortable next to objects that don’t have the invisible sign of “be-careful-not-to-break” them.

All parents are aware that curiosity drives children eyes and want to play with everything around them. It’s wise to create a kid’s friendly environment, full of enjoyable activities without worrying for any playground accidents.

We Can Do It For Kids Only, pays attention to decoration and the quality of food & sweets. Everything is well-taken care off, with respect to any special food allergies. Even the toys are selected with great attention to children’s safety.

Windsurfing Inspired Christening

This family’s love for windsurfing was the inspiration for the christening’s theme. We let our minds get blown away by Thissea’s mom creativity. Therefore, we created this happy and cheerful day for this cute baby’s guests. His dad hobby impressed the guests and the kids!

Deciding to have a celebration after your child christening is the best reason to try the wildest ideas! Because the main guests are children! Forget formalities and boring themes… try the most extreme ideas and your little guests will adore you. All family members and friends can gather and have a festive dinner but kids want to play.

Knowing that the family had a soft spot for windsurfing the idea lead us to this jaw-dropping theme. Sharks, windsurfing mood, summer colors, sea games and activities. The theme included a lot of paper sharks, lambs, exotic fruits, balloons, blue and gold colors, and summer toys. Get ready to be inspired!
